Individual Employment Support (IES) can help a person learn a new job or improve at their current one. It supports one-on-one:
- Job coaching
- Training for Assistive Technology used on the job
- Other workplace support services, including services not specifically related to skill training that help the person succeed in integrating into their job setting and
- Personal care and assistance (as a component of an IES activity).
IES providers can deliver supports in person, on behalf of and/or via virtual supports/technology. A provider may be authorized for “on behalf of” NMT as well, to get in between work sites. IES is billed as 15 minute units, as long as at least 8 minutes or more of service have been provided.
The expected outcome is maintaining competitive, integrated employment in a job that matches the person’s interests, strengths, priorities and abilities, while meeting their personal and career goals. It does not support someone finding a job. That unique service is Career Planning.
